Frequently Asked Questions

At Temple Choice Dental, we are pleased to welcome new and prospective patients who have questions about the services we provide and the care they can expect to receive when visiting our dental office. When looking for a “dentist near me,” we want you to feel comfortable reaching out to our team of experts to inquire about our office, technologies, hours, and commitment to excellence. But we also understand you may not have time to call and chat even for a few minutes. This is why we’ve compiled a list of frequently asked questions that we hope will provide clarification and additional insight into what we can do for you and your family. Should you not see your question listed below, please feel free to call our office.

How do I find the best place to get dental work done?

The answer to this question is ultimately based on what it is you’re looking for. Do you want someone who is located close to your home or work? Are you looking for an in-network dentist near Belton who accepts your dental insurance plan? Do you want a professional who offers comprehensive services for the entire family? Maybe you want someone who specializes in a particular type of dentistry? Knowing what you want from a dental practice can make a big difference in determining who you want to care for your smile. At Temple Choice Dental, we are pleased to care for patients of all ages and offer affordable dentistry that is ideal for any budget. Not to mention,we welcome dental emergency patients.

How do I get emergency dental care?

Before you begin to panic, it’s important to remember there are ways to address common dental emergencies at home while you wait to see a Medicaid dentist in Temple. The first step is to call our office and schedule an appointment. We will also go above and beyond to try and get you in the same day as your accident. In the meantime, we will offer tips and suggestions regarding what to do while at home. Should you face continuous bleeding from the mouth, a fractured jaw, or increased swelling, make sure to call 911 and get to your local emergency room as soon as possible.

However, you should keep in mind that preventive care and good dental hygiene are some of the best ways to avoid dental emergencies. Although not all are preventable, keeping your regular six-month appointments and maintaining good oral habits at home will help mitigate problematic toothaches that can lead to root canals or tooth extraction.

What do you do if you can’t afford a dentist?

The number one thing to remember is that even if you don’t think you can afford to see a dentist, you should still schedule an appointment anyway. Leaving dental problems untreated can lead to more serious and problematic issues that require timely and costlier procedures. If you have dental insurance, you can rest easier knowing that your out-of-pocket expenses will likely be less, especially if you choose to see a dentist in Temple who is in-network with your insurer. If you do not have dental insurance, you’ll be pleased to know that Temple Dental Choice accepts Medicaid, CHIP, and offers flexible financing through CareCredit.

What level of education is required to be a dentist?

To practice within the United States, dental professionals must earn a Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) or a Doctor of Dental Sciences (DDS) from an accredited dental school. Those who desire to pursue a career in dentistry must obtain a bachelor’s degree before applying to dental school. Students who enroll in an accredited dental school can expect the program to last at least 3 years and undergo both classroom and hands-on training. Should an individual choose to pursue a specialization, this can require an additional 3 years of training (there are 12 specializations recognized by the American Dental Association).

It is necessary for dentists to complete continuing education hours each year to keep their licenses.
